The rule allows comms. It doesn't force them on a rider, and it doesn't force your mechanic/coach/manager to talk to you. I'm sure the pros will be able to work out with whoever is on the other end just how they want to be talked to and what information ... more »

DC has said in the past they can make exceptions to the homologation rule. I think this was in regards to specific years of YZ250's or KTM's that are identical to ones that ARE homologated, but at least leaves some wiggle room.

Did you miss the part of his proposal where it would FIX the problem of B Class getting dicked down for a decade?

There is a slight difference in Marvin cutting the track, when there is no line there and you can still easily see the track markers, compared to the others who cut later and see a rut and no track markers nearby.

Marvin makes the pass for the lead (well outside track markers - lol)!

Added reply in a thread Mike alessi and the claiming rule back in his mini days 8/3/2018 5:30 PM

Supplemental rules state the claiming price will be double MSRP - but I don't see anything else overwritten. So this is NOT the same as the Pro class used to be way back when. 2018 ama rulebook: J. Claiming 1. All sanctioned motocross and youth meets ... more »

It is not an auction. You submit your claim with the required funds. Then a lottery is held between everyone who submitted a claim. Anyone who did not win the bike, gets their money back.

Ultimate pro tip - route both straps to the footpegs instead of the bars.

Anyone else having problems with their order? My order says there are a bunch on backorder (till October!) - but then never e-mailed me to let me know this. Nor have they e-mailed me confirmation that they shipped my bolts, even though they are supposed ... more »

Better buy them fast. The "factory finish" ones are almost sold out of all sizes and there were 5+ earlier.

What is his penalty for cheating though? Do they disqualify him for the day, or not allow him to race all season? If the penalty is the former, cheating is certainly the better option for him. edit: two separate posts highlighting specifically it is

Don't stick your arms straight INTO the ground, but you absolutely can stick them out in front of you, more surface area to absorb the fall.

Don't do this: Guess I needed to keep it pinned. Thought I had it. Helmet has 4 separate cracks, one on each cheek, one on the back and one near the chin, no concussion though (thank you Bell Moto 9 Carbon). Bike landed on me, thought I threw myself

Then yeah that's pretty much all you can strive for - a good start.

Added reply in a thread Salt Lake City SX - Daytime Program Discussion 4/28/2018 5:22 PM

Clearly not the ONLY thing - you could have a decent mechanic that can change a front tire in 1/4 of the time it took - giving Anderson back a couple points.

Added reply in a thread Salt Lake City SX - Daytime Program Discussion 4/28/2018 5:19 PM

Nice to see Wilson isn't simply pulling off for Anderson to get that free point.

Dang - that doesn't help either...Tomac came in a little hot on that corner.

Added reply in a thread Salt Lake City SX - Daytime Program Discussion 4/28/2018 5:13 PM

Tomac not gaining any time in this traffic. Even if he gets Baggett quickly, there isn't enough time left in the race to be 8 sec behind still.

Marvin hitting the second set of whoops good - going to be tough to catch up.

Wilson comes into the pits to get instructions on what was going on.
